Publisher's Summary

Marion Woodman believes that centuries of “patriarchal thinking” have stripped the soul from our inner and outer lives and placed the world in grave danger. In talks, workshops, and BodySoul Rhythms intensives in Canada, the United States, and Europe, she has urged us to engage with the unconscious energy that erupts beneath the surface of our best intentions, sending us where we may not want to go.

In this lecture and through case studies, dreams, and myths, the Jungian analyst explores the hidden causes of compulsion in the lives of men and women. At the root of eating disorders, substance abuse, and other addictive and compulsive behaviors, Woodman sees a hunger for spiritual fulfillment. The need to experience a sacred connection to an energy greater than their own drives people to search for an illusory ideal of perfection. Through discussions of parenthood, creativity, and body image, this presentation shows that freedom from addiction can be found by discovering the wisdom and power of the feminine principle.

Incredible

As Marion spoke I felt so much activation throughout my body. The first time I was listening, I felt the need to stop because I perceived the sensations as overwhelming. So many of her stories hit home for me, it was incredibly eye opening. I see now how various archetypes, addiction, and perfectionism are playing out in my life. I also feel I understand my mind-heart connection more as well as great mystery. Thank you, Marion and Audibles.
